    USB Wireless card


    I have an off-brand USB wireless card, which is nevertheless recognized at startup under 'USB Devices.' (as a name-brand product) However, I have no connectiivty with this device, and it does not seem to be recognized when running KDE. Does the fact that it is recognized at startup mean that I already have the drivers, or do I need to get them seperately?

    okay:
    what does:
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    return? How many other interfaces do you have on that box, and which distribution and kernel are you running?

    Is the wireless card your only interface?

    According to http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux...tmel-wlan/1236, there's a driver called 'berlios' which should work. A quick google of this yields:

    Although it looks like there is an official linux driver:
